SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A fourth person has been indicted for a shooting and stabbing that happened in March at the Wainwright Recreation Complex. 

John Albert Janums, 19, has been charged with robbery, two counts of attempted murder, elevated aggravated assault and aggravated assault. 

A Cumberland County grand jury indicted three other men in June on charges of attempted murder, elevated aggravated assault and robbery stemming from a shooting and stabbing over a small drug transaction.

 

 

Police arrested Zachary Swain, 19, of Cape Elizabeth, Noah Sibole-Little, 19, of Portland and Essa Sayed, 18, of Portland after the altercation March 11 at the city's recreation complex off Highland Avenue.

Police said at the time that Sayed and Swain shot and stabbed two people during what police called a drug deal involving "a relatively small quantity of marijuana."

Sibole-Little was charged later with attempted murder, elevated aggravated assault, aggravated assault and robbery. Police said he was with the other two when the attack occurred and had posted on an online classified service that he was looking to buy a handgun in the days before the shooting.

Both of the victims survived after being treated at area hospitals.
